Friday Craft, Handmade Book Episode Seven


Printable journal kit by Tsunami Rose, New Beginnings.

Another lovely kit, very flowery with butterflies, pinks and light greens and purples, tons of flowers. This kit is a more standard size, approximately 6.75″ by 4.5″. I used a recycled file folder for the cover, 5 signatures sewn into a piece of cardstock. I’ve started edging the paper with permanent pens, of which I have…several. I like the effect and it doesn’t leave little bits of shredded makeup sponge all over my craft desk. I like Distress Inks very much, but I need to but the proper tool for them. However, I am not allowed to buy any more craft supplies, so permanent pens it is.

I used scraps throughout the book for inserts to journal on, doilies to create tuck spots, and the tickets included in the kit to embellish the lined double page spreads for journaling. I’ve also sewn a couple of the little envelopes into the middle of the signatures (see the picture on the top right).
